Alfred H. Grebe was one of the young, early wireless enthusiasts who helped install and operate equipment on merchant ships back in 1912 when he was only 17. See related stories on this web site, Radio Age, Part 1, and Grebe’s colorful global shipboard diary as a wireless operator on the the British Tramp Tanker S/S Saranac, Places Visited.

Here is a photograph from that time, scanned and enhanced to improve the contrast of the faded photo print.
